Feb 20, 2012, 7:49 PM
I do realize that the 6850 is the best out of the batch and originally i was going to buy this :
but there were some bad reviews about the fan and the temps. and all of that and it discouraged me a bit.
so i thought maybe i could buy a 6790 with really nice cooling such as:
it is nice but then again it unfortunately is not a 6850 but im not sure if there is much a difference.
and also i ran across one of these :
which is cheap and at lower resolutions has better performance then the 6790
also another 460 i had in mind is:
my monitor res. is 1680 x 1050 and sometimes i use my 32' plasma which res. is 1024 x 768

Slightly faster than the HD 6850 (original 256 bit version of the GTX 460 1GB). Great overclocker and better brand as well.
